Bible Challenge – 1 Corinthians 13

February 1, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” v. 7 (NLT)

In a world where people seem to fall in and out of love, this chapter/passage and specifically this verse shows the depth in what it takes to truly love someone.  For some reason we neglect the fact that loving someone takes work.  We’ve bought into the idea that being in love means that there are no challenges, that life will be easy, and we will live happily ever after! But that’s not always the case is it?

Now let’s be honest, some people are easier to love than others! But even they have times where it’s a challenge to love them. Loving someone takes real commitment.  There will be times of disappointed, hurt, confusion, pain, uncertainty, trials, and sometimes even anger, and those feelings will test your commitment. However, there will also be times of laughter, celebration, victory, confidence, peace, power, fun, and teamwork. Regardless of the season, Love stands the test of time! And the Greatest act of Love is found here:

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.” 1 John 3:16 (NLT)

Today, Who do you need to show love to? Who do you need to forgive? Who do you need to spend quality time with? Who can you encourage? These are just some of the ways we express our love for each other! May we love others, the way Christ has loved us!
